Welcome to Café Thyme

     Eddie Osborne, Owner of Darn Good Food, LLC,  has operated Café Thyme at Powell Gardens since 2013.  The cafe offers a small, seasonal menu with an emphasis on fresh food. Café Thyme features produce from the Heartland Harvest Garden and other local producers.  They make it easy to eat the rainbow, as the wraps and salads are made with your choice of fresh fruit and toppings.
